Birthday Wishlist

You’ll have noticed at the beginning of 2017 I stopped writing up the Monthly Wishlist posts, because I wasn’t passionate enough about writing them anymore, but also felt that it was a little greedy. So I gave myself a New Year’s Resolution…to stop shopping! I felt that last year I overly spent on myself, and was buying things that I didn’t need but because I wanted them. That’s alright if I had done so every now and then, but I was very bold and would shop at least every fortnight. Instead, for the past six months I stopped shopping for myself – with the exception of replacements or necessities. I’ve also upped my charity donations, and have saved a lot more for the apartment I want to buy. However, I will allow myself to cheekily post up a birthday wishlist, because a girl can still dream! (PS: my birthday is on July 13th)

Birthday Wishlist

  • Versace Round Sunglasses VE4330I have been on the hunt for new sunglasses for a while now, as my Bulgari ones have really had their day. When I came across these designer pair by Versace though, I fell in love. I love absolutely everything about them! That gold accent along the upper rims, the crosshatch design, the slight cat eye of the round shape, and the nose bridge for extra comfort. J’adore! Available at Brown Thomas & Sunglasses Hut, €190
  • Michael Michael Kors Adrianna Sunglasses MK1010As mentioned above, sunglasses are my top hunt and these pair are another favourite choice. I must have this thing for black & gold, because these MK ones grabbed my attention due to that extra metallic accent. Available at Brown Thomas & Sunglasses Hut, €160
  • Pretty Little Thing Yellow Lace Strappy Frill Detail Bodycon Dress: Online window shopping has been a pastime of mine for the past while since my resolution, and as I’ve two weddings within one week in September, naturally I’ve got dresses on my mind! This PLT lace number really caught my eye, as I adore how it would compliment my tan (the model has the same skin tone as I), but also it has numerous details which I find very striking. Available at, €37.80
  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Mon Paris Eau de Parfum 90mlYou’d think I didn’t need more fragrances, but as a girl who loves her perfume I have gone through my last few bottles like there was no tomorrow! Of these, I can always go back to one of my favourites and that is this beauty by YSL. Fruity, floral, sensual and ladylike – what’s not to love. Available at Brown Thomas, Arnotts, Debenhams & select Boots stores, €110
  • Stella & Dot Versatile Fringe Necklace: One of my other favourite jewellery brands, this necklace caught my eye from its black suede & gold hardware, to the fact that it doubles up as a wrap bracelet too! What more can you ask of a fashionable necklace? Available at Stella & Dot, €42
  • Stella & Dot Seine Threader Earrings in GoldA little gold goes a long way. These earrings are just divine, edgy but still elegant. Available at Stella & Dot, €39
  • Thomas Sabo Glam Spirit Bico Mesh Black WatchWhat Killer Fashion wishlist is complete without Thomas Sabo?! I still adore this black mesh watch, of the silver & gold one I already have. Available at Thomas Sabo, Weir & Sons, Arnotts and select jewelers, €229
  • Fitbit Alta Classic Band in FuschiaA few weeks ago, my original Fitbit Alta band broke, and unfortunately I’ve not yet had the chance to get a new one. The Alta now comes with Heart Rate function, thus new bands are available, but the clip-on style is definitely a favourite and that hot pink is perfect for spicing up my fashion. Available at Argos, €22.99
  • ALDO Shoes Lamartina Flat SandalsNew sandals are a must as I’ve definitely worn out my current pair. I have this funny thing with the ‘toe wedge’, where I hate it and it rather freaks me out… Thankfully these sandals bear none of those features, and even have a subtle glam hint to them. Available at ALDO Shoes, €34.98
  • Zara Wide Open Neck Shirt with Puffy SleevesOne of the biggest withdrawals of not shopping is not having a fresh & shiny new work wardrobe. Zara is one of my favourites for this kind of attire, and this shirt is ideal for office to bar, which definitely would get its wear from all of my meetings & daily office happenings to the events. Available at Zara, €39.95
  • Buffalo Riviera Pointed Courts in Rose: Because birthday wishlist always needs one pair of heels! I still love my black Riviera, and I find that these rosegold version would be both versatile and classy, perfect for all occasions. Available in Buffalo ShoeLAB Exchequer Street & Arnotts, €125
